Additive Manufacturing (AM) of Nickel-base superalloys has the potential to create complex monolithic structures that can lead to performance and cost improvements in structures for high temperature environments. However, the rapid melting and solidification inherent to AM often results in micro-cracking. Samples were fabricated with CM247LC powder on two separate commercial SLM machines. Extensive SEM and TEM analysis was performed on the as fabricated samples to better understand microstructure, segregation, and defect formation. A combination of experimental data and thermodynamic simulations were utilized to develop a new variant of CM247LC with the goal to mitigate crack formation. The new alloy was processed with two commercial SLM machines and extensive microstructure characterization was performed. Other micro-crack mitigation strategies will be discussed.
